PRIPARE Tribute to Caspar Bowden

PRIPARE Tribute to Caspar Bowden

1961 – 2015

The members of the PRIPARE project regret the loss of Caspar Bowden, who died on July 9, 2015. His career was dedicated to the protection of privacy since the early 1990s.

Mr. Bowden was a British privacy advocate who co-founded the Foundation for Information Policy Research (FIPR) in May 1998. He became its first director, earning the Winston award in 2000 for his work against the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.  He served as Senior Privacy Strategist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa until 2004, and became Chief Privacy Adviser for 40 countries in 2005. In 2012, prior to the Snowden leaks, he authored the “Note on Privacy and Cloud Computing,” forewarning that the USA utilised European reliance on cloud computing services to monitor its data.  The obituary in The Guardian presents many aspects of his career in more detail.

Mr. Bowden collaborated with several PRIPARE partners, in particular in previous projects such as GST FP6 on Global System for Telematics Enabling On-line Safety Services and PRECIOSA FP6 on Privacy in Intelligent Transport Systems. We are grateful for his insightful remarks.

PRIPARE collaboration in relation to privacy patterns

The PRIPARE project has formed a collaboration with Doty et al. in relation to our catalogue of privacy patterns. Doty and the PRIPARE project maintain collaborative platforms for the collection of privacy patterns at http://privacypatterns.org, and http://privacypatterns.eu respectively. One of the next steps is to align the pattern templates, and in the long run to potentially combine the two platforms to offer the software-design community a central repository to discuss and develop privacy patterns.

With this action PRIPARE intends to support privacy awareness and contribute to the adoption of privacy-by-design methodologies.
